Most human beings agree that nonhuman beings should be treated humanely, and they should not suffer unnecessarily. Many human beings share their homes with dogs and cats who they treat like family members. Many humans get upset when they see someone mistreat a dog or cat, and offer help because they understand the innocent victim is suffering and/or call law enforcement because they understand the mistreatment represents an illegal act.
Ironically, these same people support necessary suffering of nonhuman beings every day because laws protect and justify necessary suffering for human purposes. Acts that warrant criminal charges when performed by private citizens and would certainly be regarded as torture if they were committed against human beings remain LEGAL as long as there exists a human purpose.
The food, clothing, research and experimentation, and entertainment industries all represent human purposes. These industries unconscionably, cruelly and violently torture, mutilate and slaughter innocent lives for human purposes. Although no isolated act of cruelty or violence against a nonhuman being can be condoned or minimized in any way, every single year, human beings support the cruel and violent treatment of approximately 70 billion nonhuman beings who live on land and one trillion nonhuman beings who live in the sea. (All wars in the history of the world account for the loss of about one billion lives.)
To date, many human beings deny the Truth that is quickly unraveling because they refuse to educate themselves by watching live footage of the inside of factory farms or by visiting a slaughterhouse like the young medical doctor did in the story of The White Cow below.
Mothers cannot imagine what it would be like to have their newborn babies taken away from them. As a result, they refuse to believe the Truth that standard industry practice separates mothers and babies within the first 24 hours of birth. There exists a plethora of documentaries, YouTube videos, undercover investigations, interviews, et al. regarding this Traumatic Truth.
Every day, human beings are duped by Big Ag and Big Pharm into believing a ridiculous oxymoron like “humane treatment” exists. (The definition of humane is “having or showing compassion or benevolence.”) They believe the marketing and advertising slogans such as farm raised, grass fed and no antibiotics or hormones actually transform toxic substances into healthy foods exactly like they bought the marketing and advertising schemes of commercials of doctors, movie stars, athletes and housewives boasting of toasted, tasty, relaxing, refreshing, fashionable cigarettes from 1941 to 1971. (See Posts entitled, “The Correlation between Tobacco and Big Ag” and “Sensory pleasure: Big Ag (meat, fish, dairy, egg industries) verses Tobacco” herein.)
Unfortunately, whether we partake in this holocaust, we all continue to get swindled out of our money (due to the approximate 200% extra cost we all pay ) for the hidden medical and environmental costs of indulging in the flesh, byproducts and secretions of nonhuman beings for sensory pleasure.
Please learn the FACTS, and share the FACTS with others TODAY. The insightful, informative video below by Lesli Bisgould, Canada’s first Nonhuman Rights Lawyer, was published on May 6, 2014!
New Hope Now and the Nonhuman Rights community made extraordinary progress in 2019.
Last year, I met with Senator Booker’s Counsel, Adam Zipkin, and Lauren Tavar regarding the passage of several Nonhuman Rights bills. As I suspected, only one, entitled the Compassionate Cosmetics Act, appeared ripe for passage. (The other drafts remain on hold…but, not for long!)
I also designed this website; created a YouTube channel, and filmed and published several videos; wrote a book and created an online store.

PLEASE KNOW that I remain extremely grateful and blessed for all of YOUR gracious support. I love being a part of the most important social justice issue of our time, and most importantly acting as a steward for all nonhuman beings.
2020 is going to be a GREAT year! We are on the brink of freeing them all!
I, personally, have exciting plans as you will soon see. With respect to advocacy and legislation, it appears President Trump may have opened a doorway for us when he signed PACT, HR 724 on November 25, 2019.
More good news.
Senator (and Presidential Candidate) Cory Booker introduced the Farm System Reform Act of 2019 which will place a moratorium on CAFOs.
In addition, The Guardian published an article about an ethical veganism/employment discrimination case. Apparently, Peter Daly, Esquire of the prestigious law firm of Slater Gordon in London will represent Mr. Casamitjana who was terminated by his employer, League Against Cruel Sports, because he advised his colleagues that their employer invested pension monies in companies involved in animal testing. It appears that the aforementioned lawsuit serves as an opportunity to set a legal precedent with respect to protected classes which has the potential to set the tone for the rest of the world because as you know, most people do not understand that veganism represents a lifestyle and the premise is “ahimsa” which means “nonviolence and reverence for all life” in the Hindu, Buddhist and Jainist traditions. Accordingly, absolutely yes, veganism does fall under the umbrella of religious discrimination.
